  • This is actually being installed in and served by a web server is it?

    Yes, i uploaded the files to the server yesterday and i followed the directions. Upon clicking on the install.php all i get is a pop up wordpad . It is supposed to sefl install right?

    garybigg. Do not click on install.php.
    After uploading the files, go to the url http://example.com/wordpress/install.php
    in other words, access the install.php page using your favourite browser.

    would i replace example.com with my own domain name?

    yes, of course, I am sorry I forgot to mention that. so now, If example.com were your domain name and if wordpress files are in the wordpress folder in your website’s root, then
    http://example.com/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php is where you should go to , using your browser, to install.

    Ok i did that now i get an error message saying:
    Error establishing a database connection! This probably means that the connection information in youn wp-config.php file is incorrect. Double check it and try again.
    Are you sure you have the correct user/password?
    Are you sure that you have typed the correct hostname?
    Are you sure that the database server is running?
    At least i got something this time !

    I’m in, thanks for all the help !
